Earlier this month, three schools from Belgrade School District received prestigious healthy school awards through the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) HealthierUS School Challenge (HUSSC) program.  This voluntary, national award recognizes schools which create healthy school environments by improving the quality of meals and increasing physical activity and nutrition education. 

Congratulations to Belgrade Intermediate School, Heck Quaw Elementary School and Ridgeview Elementary School! Each school receives $500.00 to support the school wellness.    These award-winning schools make nutrition and physical activity a priority every day.  Healthy students perform well in school.
